New allergy test promises safer antibiotic use
Allergies to antibiotics are the commonest form of medication allergies and, in the worst cases, can result in anaphylaxis and death. SINTEF is participating in the development of a new allergy test that will make it easier to provide patients with safe and correct treatments.
NTNU, Telenor and SINTEF open Norway’s new powerhouse for artificial intelligence
Norway’s new powerhouse for artificial intelligence (AI) opens in Trondheim today. The new centre, Telenor-NTNU AI-Lab, will strengthen national competitiveness and add valuable, future-proof competencies to the Norwegian society.
Researcher’s heart problems uncover security gap
Marie Moe, who is a SINTEF researcher in cybersecurity, discovered that her heart is being regulated by a pacemaker which can be hacked.
The vision of Sharing Neighbourhoods is digitalization towards a socially inclusive and caring neighbourhood. We will investigate the effects of digital collaborative sharing platforms on the social interactions in neighbourhoods, and the new economic models that these platforms enable in the neighbourhoods.
The EarlyWarn project will develop AI-based monitoring systems to detect and identify problems in the high-voltage power transmission and distribution system, before the problems escalate and cause blackouts or destruction of expensive equipment.
Currently, maintenance planning in the railroad domain is predominantly performed manually and involves: Crew scheduling (assigning maintenance tasks to crews dependent on skill set) and job shop scheduling (assign time slots for vehicles to depot workstations). These activities should be synchronised and coordinated with vehicles revenue generating activity (where the vehicles are scheduled to transporting goods or passengers). Due to the substantial fixed costs involved, improved planning is expected to generate significant cost savings.
